A new play about the legal battles over California’s Proposition 8 will be performed in several staged readings on Broadway in September, the New York Times reports. Written by Oscar-winning Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, the drama, titled simply 8, consists largely of dialogue from transcripts of the 2010 trial that ended with a judge overturning Proposition 8, the 2008 California legislation that had defined marriage as strictly a union between man and a woman. (The ruling is currently being appealed.) After its Broadway debut, 8 is set to be performed at several college campuses around the country, including Carnegie Mellon and Northwestern.
